HAMDEN, Conn. – Quinnipiac University Women's Soccer Head Coach Dave Clarke's QU-101 Class was featured on NBC Connecticut News on Wednesday, November 28, 2012. The story, reported by NBC's Brad Drazen, highlights Clarke's QU-101 Introduction Course and his students' community involvement. Several freshmen in the course recently worked together to develop a fundraising project - with all proceeds going to victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Hundreds of Quinnipiac's students come from the hardest hit areas of New Jersey, New York and the Tri-State Area. The project began at the TD Bank Sports Center at QU's Basketball home-opener on November 12, 2012. Several other groups collected clothing and additional donations around campus and the Hamden area.

This first-semester interdisciplinary seminar introduces students to Quinnipiac University by challenging them to locate themselves as individuals who can read, reason, speak and write critically about their academic and civic responsibilities as engaged members of their new learning community. While integrating academic perspectives on the course theme from a variety of disciplines, students consider fundamental questions of human nature, the formation of individual identity and common inheritances, and of how diverse communities form, evolve and sustain themselves through the perennial interplay of individual rights and group responsibilities. QU 101 also lays the groundwork for considering how students can extend their roles and responsibilities as members of the Quinnipiac community to the national and global perspectives they will consider in QU 201 and QU 301.
